, certainly closer than the president won four years ago i thinthe momenms with romney and the obama people are not just spinning when they say, look, out of that first debate in denver he doesn't have momentum where he overwhelmed us he brought home the base be does president's in number has not chanced by any means but pretty pistol hid and that means governor romney has upward momentum or has had it, maybe that has stalled we don't really though but the president does not have bad momentum he is not collapsing in any way, i think that the momentum in this race can has always been difficult to pull off because we have so many people deded, whatev u thi the model is accurate, whatever model you think accurately decide how many persuadable voters there are, it is a small must be so momentums is measures in ins tens of thousands rather than a mass swing. >> rose: do the republicans in this race more enthuse wraferk than the democrats? >> i think they are, if you look, you read all of the polling data in a sophisticated way, and you go out in the country and go to events, i don't think

. republicans told me earlier this week that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollster, neil newhouse, was saying that he doesn't buy some of these national polls, because he was just pointing out that the quinnipiac "new york times" poll, and said that was weighted more heavily toward registered voters than likely voters and thought that it sort of overshowed a lit

romney barely mentioned in their debates -- banking reform. it's four years since the econoc meltdown knocked america and the world to our knees, four years since that massive taxpayer bailout. but if you listened do te candidates, the enormity and severity of thise ontinuing crisis hardly merit notice.th barack obama pledges change but touts dodd-frank, a bulky, watered-down version of financial reform that scarcely makes a ripple in the vast sea of corruption and abuse. mitt romn campaigns as the banker's pal and says he'll make dodd- frank disappear altogether. c if you're appalled by this, so is the man who held the thankless job special alspector general in charge of p policing tarp, the bailout's troubled asset relief plan. before he signed on, neil barofsky was a feral prosecutor in newa ork chasing white-collar criminals and drug lords. n he busted 50 members of a columbian guerrilla group deeply inolved in narcotics trafficking. at tarp, he was assigned tool ferret out waste, fraud and abuse. the banks didn't make it easy, and neither did the u.s. government. neil barofsky te

romney's way. >> nate, let's talk about ohio. the sort of premier swing state. you have made the point of a state filled with white working class voters and elsewhere turned on obama in four years and if they had in ohio like they have elsewhere this would be a pretty easy romney feat and obama's ahead by a few points and been a consistent leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the ec

romney is offering them is a break from the status quo, not four more years but four years of promises of new jobs and a fresh start for millions of americans, a brighter future for their children, it's a clear choice here, erin, and i don't think three days of us being worried and praying for the victims of this storm are going to change four years of aboutment. . >> what about, though, then just the bottom line here, which is the path to 270 without ohio is difficult but not impossible. ohio the polls haven't changed at all. you talk about momentum, but i'm looking here at florida, ohio and vrnl but look at ohio, 50 for the president, 45 for mitt romney. that's outside the margin of error. >> that's one poll. there's other polls showing it very, very close, within the margin of error. in fact i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. i'll tell you what's key, erin, to look at now just a few days left and that is barack obama has not broken 50%. he's down in the 47%, 48%, has been for what the better part of two months now. he can't break that number whether i
